This is my (in)activity log. You might like to visit
Productivity a subsidiary of Collabora focusing on LibreOffice support and
services for whom I work.
Also if you have the time to read this sort of stuff you could enlighten
yourself by going to Unraveling Wittgenstein's net or if
you are feeling objectionable perhaps here. Failing that, there are all manner of interesting things to read on
the LibreOffice Planet news
Stuff Michael Meeks is doing
Mail chew; admin, patch review here & there - encouraging to
see more fixes & performance improvements for Online as well as
good progress to our next major release.
After Italo's keynote announcement of the new LibreOffice Technology
marketing plan at the LibreOffice conference, we lost no time integrating
this great way to fairly present the goodness of LibreOffice that we depend
on to build Collabora Online & Collabora Office mobile into the product.
With new links that can take you to our LibreOffice Technology
page where we can celebrate the community & credit all the hard work
done under the hood here, and of course the logo. Still a work-in-progress,
and will start to appear in our products over the next weeks as/when we
refresh them, but so far it looks like this for desktop & mobile:
Thanks to Italo & Mike at TDF for developing the concept, and also to
Pedro & Elisa, for their work on the code & logos - we'll be
iterating it with them over the next days & weeks.
Mail chew; catch up with Miklos, Andras & a great COOL
community call - lovely to see some of the hacktober participants
showing up and contributing.
Slept badly, took babes to school in such a hurry I left my
wallet & phone at home: discovered this having filled up the car;
eventually released to get them from home; ho hum.
A day of gut-wrenching TDF administrative angst; draining.

youth group afterwards. Out for a drink with J. while waiting
for them; home.
J. out all day, plugged away at tidying the garage;
worked on new loft hatch with E. - had fun together playing
outside. Bit of work, helped
N. with some homework. David over for Ham, Eggs & Chip

PCC minutes into some sort of shape.
